I'm trying to figure out what breed this little one is. This little ball of fluff was a bonus in my Meyer chick order! I'm trying to figure out what it is. Based on chick pics from Meyer I'm leaning towards a Blue Copper Marans because the pic has the same coloring and eye markings but no leg feathering on my chick. Although, the description says clean legged... Coloring is grey and darker around the face/head, no yellow anywhere. The other three chicks pictured are as ordered, one Splash Marans and two Black Copper Marans, they are all three days old. I really have no idea, please help! I also included a picture of a BCM (leg band) because their eye markings are similar. I honestly don't care what it is but I really want to know what it is! Thanks in advance!

Maybe Orpington or Andalusian?
My Australorp chick was very dark black on top. Your chick looks like it is grey! I have Marans mixes and they all had feathers. Unless it is one of the clean-legged Marans! ❤️

All grey, no yellow at all, that's why I didn't think australorp. Yes, some Marans do have clean legs I just don't know.

I was thinking maybe blue australorp...

But yes, possibly a maran. My clean legged maran looked similar to that as a chick

Blue Australorp was my first thought, but I think Ideal is the only hatchery I remember having them! (I really want one in my order for next year)!

Interesting! Though I couldn't find the blue australorp on meyers website.
Yes that one is a Black copper marans, I posted her pic as comparison to the little grey that is the mystery chick in question 😉
